In every age the church is threatened by heresy, and heresy is bound up in false doctrine. It is the desire of all heretics to minimize the importance of doctrine. When doctrine is minimized, heresy can exercise itself without restraint.

What man lacks most is will, constancy of will. Man works to earn his living, and when he finishes his day … He wants to sleep. He is lazy where public things are concerned. We let catastrophes come, we let them ripen. They don’t come because men want them to; they come because men want to sleep. ‘We can’t do anything about it. If it must happen, better not to know about it. Humanity has always been severely threatened. The threats are not diminishing. But one must sleep, after all. Sleep.
